The People's Remix Competition 399
PRCv16-14


Hello everyone and Welcome to the People's Remix Competition!

In PRC397 it was TheVideoGamer who got the win since his bonus was the only song. The source is selected:

It's a shame about Truxton, i'd thought it get some attention. Not to worry, i suppose the bright side, is that i get to pick another tune. In this case, Mega Turrican, a game with a seriously underrated soundtrack (No wonder Chris Hulsbeck is often hailed as the top ten Amiga composers).

The game, like i said is Mega Turrican, and the track name is Stage 1-2. As you can tell, there is no composition titles, it goes by stage number. I think during a re-release, there might have been titles. All i know, is that it officially goes by stage number. So in this case, Stage 1 - Act 2.

Composed by Chris Hulsbeck in 1993, it's one of the best uses of synthesis in the Sega Genesis lifespan, alongside loads of games. This game often goes ignored, which is sad, because there is some amazing gems here. Most of the soundtrack, is 80's rock. Think Van Halen, but with more guitars, than synths (I'm pretty much comparing it to their hit Jump, which is a bit of a whack comparison,  but it's more or less that style. 80's synthpop/rock kind of thing). Other tracks use a lot more ambience, and soundscapes for the darker moments in the game, but it's mostly a rock thing. Point being, it's a great soundtrack, and this one is one of my favourites from the game.

And my own custom made MIDI, as always.

You may enter as many mixes as you like and work with as many people as you like on each mix. You are free to create a second ThaSauce account for that if you use ThaSauce, it's needed to be able to upload a second remix if you use ThaSauce. Of course you can also upload it somewhere else and put a download link in this thread.

Do not make qualitative comments on an entry until the results of the vote have been posted in this thread.

Mixers cannot vote for themselves but if they vote they receive a free first place vote added onto their score.

The winner of this round may select the source for PRC401, the rounds after next round. That round will have two sources. PRC400 is a Sonic special round.

The winner of PRC397, TheVideoGamer, who picked this source, can only participate by submitting a Bonus Mix. His vote is doubled in the voting stage.

GOOD LUCK!

I read inbetween the lines. After 2 paragraphs of mumbling, i found my answer. I believe "gotta go fast" is the motto. Sonic special right?

Gotta snort blow fast!!  Sonic 2020.  Or maybe 2006?   The latter makes more sense.

I'm afraid, I don't get it Captain...

Oh well, congrats HoboKa. Can’t win them all...

Unless it's by default, or a Howlowe'en round :)

edit

Hope you enjoyed what I made anyhow.  The first half, I used a megadrive guitar patch and put a flanger effect on it.

Yeah i really liked both interpretations. The first is a straight up classic Genesis/Megadrive conversion. Not really ideal for this source, because your essentially remixing an FM tune into FM lol. Second half was better, drums were really great, and i liked the addition of a more airy vibe. Also the lead synth/guitar felt stronger here too (Which overally is pretty dope). Still both sections were really good. Good job!

I think we both had the same idea of an FM bass though haha.

Come to think of it, your adaptation is like a 32 bit remake.  And that's not a bad thing.  Though I wish the 2nd half took some new direction.  Unless I'm missing something subtle here. Was kinda browsing Newgrounds comments whilst listening :P

Yeah, mine isn't that special. It's kind of what you would expect from my sort of remake/rework. The most significant being the FM Bass. Thanks anyways!
